Obviously you'll need a core of permies but given that many back office functions in London are contractor-heavy, there's no reason to change that model for Liverpool, Warrington, Manchester, Leeds, etc.
    Even cheaper if you make everyone work at home or preferably off-shore....

    I remember the first piece of work I did to help a bid for an employer. Among the documentation was a chart that listed employee, H&S and redundancy rights per country.

    Brexit should make the Indians happy, then. Gives less sway to the Eastern Europeans. Still can't believe we're not following the US model off onshoring to cheaper parts of the UK more. Banks would save a fortune having their back office functions along the M62 corridor, just like New York uses the Carolinas.

    This is so bad.
    Is this common?
